3/5 88% Spirit of the Marathon (2008) " Like the majority of its subjects, this inspiring doc may not be able to hang with the big girls and boys at the front of the box office pack, but it looks to have the legs to last in the right theatres -- perhaps especially so during the Olympics.

3/5 83% Prince of Broadway (2010) " Baker proves himself a worthy heir to the Italian neorealists of the 40s and 50s capturing capably the desperation, and potential defeat, inherent in poverty. Arthouse audiences will be properly appreciative. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Jul 10, 2008
3/5 78% Baghead (2008) " Although it displays some mumblecore characteristics, such as a performance from Hannah Takes the Stairs star Greta Gerwig, Baghead distances itself from the movement by being well, watchable. " ‐ Boxoffice Magazine

2/5 38% Zombie Strippers (2008) " Call it unintentional-intentional-unintentional humor: Lee presumably believes that he's satirizing the unintentional laughs inherent in no-budget genre fare, but does so in such a shoddy manner that the audience is laughing at him instead of with him.
